The survey revealed that many who suffer from acne miss moments where first impressions would be made, such as first dates or job interviews, moments where cameras would be present, including social gatherings with friends and family, and even their weddings, high school proms, or birthday parties. In fact, according to this survey, nearly 1 in 4 moderate to severe acne sufferers have missed over 10 important life moments due to acne, and when acne sufferers do show up for those life moments, they are often wrought with negative feelings and insecurities that keep them from being fully present.
“It doesn't surprise me that the vast majority of acne sufferers change their behaviors when they are experiencing a flare up and have missed out on important life events,” said
Respondents shared some of the big moments they missed due to acne:
- “I missed out on my high school prom because of my acne.”
- “I had a horrendous breakout the day before my cousin’s wedding. I chose to stay home due to my insecurities.”
- “I missed a date with my husband for our wedding anniversary.”
- “My friends set me up on a date with a guy I had a thing for…I backed out because of my appearance due to acne.”
“It’s clear from the findings that in addition to all of the physical and emotional side effects that acne causes, it is also causing those who suffer to miss milestone events or important moments, big or small, throughout their life,” said
Dozens of AviClear devices have been placed around the country as part of the company’s limited commercial release.
